Wow, you look great!!! You eyes, especially. They’re very defined. I think, as long as it holds up, you should definitely do your own makeup ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautiful! Maybe get some falsies so your lashes show up in photos better, and I would suggest a little more blush and possibly a touch of highlight on the top of your cheekbones. There are so many good, camera-friendly foundations these days so you could definitley do your own ๐Ÿ™‚

honeybadgered :  My only suggestion is to do something with your cheeks, either do a little bit of contouring with bronzer or put some blush. Other than that it looks good.

I agree, looks nice. I’ll second what others said and suggest a bit more blush and bolder lashes (either more/a different mascara or falsies) I’m a big lash kind of girl, but if you’re not or they bother you then don’t. Overall looks really nice, love your brow shape

Good idea about using the engagement shoot as a trial run. I too would condiser doing my own makeup for my wedding since everytime I’ve had it professionally done I’ve felt like I didn’t “look like myself”

You look very pretty! I agree with the others that I would just add falsies and some blush and you’re good to go!

honeybadgered :  firstly, you are gorgeous!!

You are almost spot on, and I agree with PP. More mascara after curling lashes or falsies, and some more blush

Well, you’re beautiful! But since you asked for constructive criticism I’ll say that this look feels pretty severe and a little flat. I’m not a MOU, but I think some color in the cheeks and a softer/lighter eye look would do wonders for you.

I’m in the same situation as you, but I’m refusing to pay for hair and make-up. I’m not that great with either, but my sister is. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve never used falsh lashes. It looks like that’s what people are recommending for you. Let me know how that works out for you! I’m a little nervous about using them, but I’m willing to give them a try!
